Stock '99 360 F1 Coupe. A couple of times I've had something interesting happen in a 2-1 downshift. I don't think it's a problem so much as a quirk, but I'd like to hear from anyone else that may have experienced this... When slowing to a near stop, with RPMs very low, I "requested" first gear. The first time this happened in heavy traffic and the car stumbled really bad, almost went dead, caught and came back to life. The second time it happened, I had just turned right and was heading up a hill and the car did go dead. At no other time does any shifting seem out of the ordinary. My guess is that I asked for 1st at the same time the computer was deciding it should go into first, and it got confused. No harm done either time, but I can see how it could be a problem depending on the situation. Maybe I should request first sooner anytime I suspect I may need it, and make sure to keep the RPMs up?
